Happy Labor Day! As NOMADS, we labored on Labor Day. We work four days/week and since this is our last week, we don’t have the option of working Friday instead of Monday. It was a beautiful day but much warmer than the past several days. The high today was 80 and working out in the sun on the roof of the church it felt much hotter.
Since the VIM team was still here, our morning started in the kitchen at 6:00 am helping Roxy prepare breakfast. Since there was 25-30 people for every meal we thought Roxy needed some help. But we are looking forward to an extra hour of sleep tomorrow morning.
We kept the entire team together today and worked on the addition to the church with Pastor Deb and her husband Larry. They are adding three bathrooms to the building that houses the volunteers and will be the future church building. It was nice to have everyone together for the first time in the five weeks we have been here. Today we completed installing the tin on the roof except for the very last sheet. We were one sheet short. Larry will try to purchase that last sheet tomorrow for us. We also began installing the sheathing. We did some drywall work in the building they are currently using for their sanctuary. Max, Rick and Tom also delivered 25 sheets of drywall out to Nate’s house so we can begin installing the drywall in the morning. Today was physically hard and the entire team is tired tonight but it was a great day. Lots of laughter and fellowship. Suspect we will be tired every night this week. Lots to do before we leave on Friday.
